The island was really beautiful and we had great time there. The staffs are general very friendly and helpful. but there are few things that will improve the better stay over there: 1. internet access which only in lobby or jetty area. There is not even phone connection in the room as our booking has lots of problems that we really need to contact the website. that was really hard work to get it done. 2. food - there are lots of Asian travel to the island, but they only provide very limited options for food. There are all kind of food available in Cairns. shouldn't be too hard to bring in some Asian food in or other options to make meal time much easier. 3. the general store is the only place available for all the guests to get some stuff, but it is close at 4pm and even meat pies are running out in 30 seconds. Will be better to open longer hours and provide a bit more hot snacks and goods.

Absolutely loved the island, plenty to do and it was very relaxing. The room was ok, the resort could do with a little work though; - we were only provided with a sheet on our bed and a throw blanket in the cupboard, it was too hot to sleep with just the fan on, and to cold to leave the air conditioner on all night. - no gym on the island - there was sand in our room leftover from previous guests throughout the floors. - we paid for 2 x island suites, one had a perfect view on the 2nd floor, and the other was on the ground floor with the view of the ocean blocked by a cabin which we didn't think we good enough seeing as we had paid for an island room. - our room was also missing some utensils which was inconvenient as we had cooked many meals which required the missing utensils. In saying that, we would return, however if the room is not to our expectation next time we will definitely be complaining.

We had such a good time that we have already booked to go back in a few months and stay for a week rather than the 2 nights we just did!

I love staying at Fitzroy. I'm never sorry about my experiences. At 45 minutes from Cairns, it's a great trip and the perfect weekend or overnight getaway. The apartments are well appointed with full sized fridge, oven, hotplates and microwave, so taking your own food is a great option. Eating at Foxy's Bar and Café is great as well. There is always the opportunity to dine in the restaurant if one would prefer, and the menu looks quite appetizing.
